The rooms are modern, quiet, comfortable and clean, yet the charm of this hotel's historic past remains, complete with the resident ghost of Colonel Eldridge, who is said to haunt Room 506. If you are planning to stay in Lawrence for the food, shopping and the general ambiance of this wonderfully eccentric small college town, the location of this hotel is perfect. Get a suite, then walk down Massachusetts Street for a bit of shopping and people-watching. At the end of the day, you can have a really good steak in the restaurant downstairs or eat in one of.several decent farm-to-table restaurants nearby. The service in the hotel, restaurant and bar are excellent, too.
If you would rather be nearer to the campus, it's sister hotel -- The Oread -- is also an excellent choice.
